Pour Le Vin is an energetic range of wines made from grapes sourced in the Languedoc and Gascony, providing the perfect balance between ripeness and freshness. They are made to showcase the best of French winemaking, and with a selection of five different grape varieties there is a wine for every occasion. Each wine is named after a different French idiom that represents its style and personality. These are wines made for sharing and socialising, and their labels are great conversation starters! Based in the southwestern Languedoc, in the Aude region, the 40 year old vines thrive on silty/sandy soil. These vines are cordon trained and harvesting takes place in late September. The Syrah grapes are de-stemmed and macerated in tank before being bottled. Faim de Loup means "Hungry like a wolf", and this is a wine for hearty foods and cosy nights in front of the fire.
Enticing aromas of juicy cherry, plum and blackberry. The palate is soft, succulent and spicy with mouthfuls of lush, ripe berry fruit flavours with a touch of coffee and spice and a note of violets on the finish.
Think classic French casseroles, traditional roasts or grilled beef or lamb.
